  1. I heard something about this yesterday in the Big Pine Key Winn-Dixie parking lot, from Steve Estes, who publishes the News-Barometer on Big Pine. Steve said word was around 30 law enforcement vehicles, sheriff, state, fed, were on No Name Key.

    This morning having breakfast in Coco’s Kitchen next to that Winn-Dixie, I asked my waitress if she knew what it was about? She told me the manager of No Name Key Pub went missing, and they were searching for him.

    Right after that, several young me in state of Florida fire and air conservation uniforms came into Coco’s to have breakfast. I’d never seen uniforms like their’s before. I asked one of the young men if they were involved in the search for the missing manager of the Pub? Yes, They were out in the woods on No Name for hours yesterday, tromping around, with sniffer dogs which had been given the scent by letting them go into the missing man’s car. No sign of him yet, they said.

    I was up Big Pine way because I’m staying a few days with a friend of mine who lives on Cudjoe Key. I had ridden the Key West Transit bus to Marathon from Cudjoe to Big Pine. Right now, I’m sitting in the Big Pine library, using their Wi-Fi. I lived on Little Torch Key in 2006 and 2007, and from 2010-2013. Familiar terrain.
